Mission Statement

Our mission is to promote and live by the Four Pillars of the Green Party. Grassroots Democracy Every human being deserves a say in the decisions that affect their lives and not be subject to the will of another. Therefore, we will work to increase public participation at every level of government and to ensure that our public representatives are fully accountable to the people who elect them.

We will also work to create new types of political organizations which expand the process of participatory democracy by directly including citizens in the decision-making process. Social Justice All persons should have the rights and opportunity to benefit equally from the resources afforded us by society and the environment.

We must consciously confront in ourselves, our organizations, and society at large, barriers such as racism and class oppression, sexism and homophobia, ageism and disability, which act to deny fair treatment and equal justice under the law.

Ecological Wisdom Human societies must operate with the understanding that we are part of nature, not separate from nature. We must maintain an ecological balance and live within the ecological and resource limits of our communities and our planet.

We support a sustainable society which utilizes resources in such a way that future generations will benefit and not suffer from the practices of our generation. To this end we must practice agriculture which replenishes the soil; move to an energy efficient economy; and live in ways that respect the integrity of natural systems. Non-violence It is essential that we develop effective alternatives to society s current patterns of violence.

We will work to demilitarize, and eliminate weapons of mass destruction, without being naive about the intentions of other governments. We recognize the need for self-defense and the defense of others who are in helpless situations.

We promote non-violent methods to oppose practices and policies with which we disagree, and will guide our actions toward lasting personal, community and global peace.


Our values are Grassroots Democracy, Social Justice, Ecological Wisdom, and Non-violence. A vote for the Green Party is a strong statement. It tells the mainstream parties that Green values are YOUR values.
